OPR Throws Some Shade

On Saturday, February 10th, Orange Plaza Rotary members pulled together students and parents at Fletcher Elementary in Orange to plant 8 new trees on school property.  The young saplings will provide shade in the area between the school’s hardtop area and the grassy playing fields.

Project leader Joe Colombo negotiated the purchase and delivery of the trees to the work site.  Along with member Jason Curtis, Joe directed the volunteers, some as young as 5 years old, as holes were dug for each tree.  This project illustrates the club’s focus on community service projects that appeal to families wanting to volunteer their time.

The $1,500 project was funded by the proceeds of the annual Orange Plaza Car Show, which takes place each April.
